Mulberry Spring Summer ’18 Collection

Archetypes of Englishness inspire the Mulberry Spring Summer ’18 collection – Edwardiana, Ascot Ladies’ Day, garden parties, the great tradition of tea in fine bone china. Pastimes from another time, to inspire a collection for the present.

“It’s about British culture, English culture,” says Mulberry Creative Director Johnny Coca. “I’ve visited houses in England with walls of antique porcelain objects.They represent a heritage, something that you can pass down, and something for the next generation to make their own.”

Mulberry’s ready-to-wear is a fusion of the old-school heritage and tradition of British craftsmanship, with the dynamic cool of today – epitomised by the contrast between Mulberry’s historical base in Somerset, and its home in London. Dominated by English and Scottish fabrics, steeped in references drawn from thenation’s culture, Creative Director Johnny Coca’s outlook for the twenty-first century Mulberry is quintessentially and uniquely British, combining the best of the old with the thrill of the new.
Mulberry is the largest manufacturer of leather goods in the United Kingdom. A love of and a respect for the craft of making and manufacturing leather accessories has been the foundation of Mulberry’s identity since 1971. Today the expertise of Mulberry in leather working is respected globally thanks to600 dedicated staff located at Mulberry’s two production facilities in Somerset.
The Spring Summer ‘18 collection bags represent the next generation of Mulberry styles. Accessories borrow from ready-to- wear, gently edged with thecollection’s gathers and frills – the Small Amberley Satchel is presented with a ruffled trim. The palette is soft, feminine, ballerina shades of bone and paleporcelain blue combined with rich and contrasting core colours like oxblood.
For Spring Summer ‘18, low heels, fluted and rounded like china vases, offer another take on contradictions of strength and fragility. The shoe and boot styles are in soft nappa, with the ease of a ballet slipper in a rounded snub-toe, often a ruffled edging and an ankle strap. Other styles have furry trims, like boudoirslippers requisitioned for daily use.
